SEMICON Southeast Asia 2019 – the premier electronics manufacturing event returns this year with a special focus on smart manufacturing.
Dr. Ong Kian Ming, the Deputy Minister of the International Trade and Industry, officiated the opening ceremony at MITEC.
“A strong manufacturing sector would pave the way to enhancing productivity, job creation, innovation capacity, high-skilled talent development and ultimately economic prosperity and societal well-being,” he said.
Dr. Ong also iterated that given Malaysia’s strong manufacturing base built over the years and the on-going Industry4WRD initiatives, the country is well positioned to be a primary destination for smart manufacturing and a location for more high-tech activities.
In this event, the industry experts across the region including 16 companies at the Malaysian Pavilion have come and join to bring smart technologies to the center of the stage.
One of the highlights is the very first Smart Manufacturing Pavilion that allows the visitors to walk through the entire end-to-end microelectronics supply chain.
Through the showcase, subject matter experts would display each component along the smart factory multi-step line and with actual equipment on the floor, from design and materials through front-end patterning, packaging and test to final board and system assembly.
In conjunction with SEMICON, MARii is showcasing its initiatives under the Big Data Analytics (BDA) and Internet of Things (IoT) platforms.
MARii showcased technologies such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and data analysis services. Visitors are able to imagine what life is like when IoT is embedded all around, enhancing cities into smart cities in the future.
MARii serves to enhance the automotive industry in adopting robotics and IoT, in line with the National Policy on Industry 4.0.
The three-day event (7-9 May 2019) features three themed pavilions, five global pavilions, inspiring keynote presentations and a host of technology forums to address key trends and issues in the electronics manufacturing supply chain.
